Potato (Purple Sun)


Plant the seed potatoes 4-6″ deep, about 12-15″ apart, in rows spaced 24-36″ apart. Plants reach 18-24″w.

95–110 days. Bred by the USDA for high vitamin C and carotenoid levels, this potato is also dramatic-looking and delicious. Round to oblong tubers with dark purple skin contrast with yellow flesh. Eat with skin on for best effect. Very tasty roasted, boiled, or fried. Described by a New York Times food critic as having a “full earthy flavor that hints of hazelnuts.” Firm but not waxy, stores up to five months. Also called Peter Wilcox.
